The Serum Trials – Estee Lauder & Clinique

Read More

My skincare routine has been a little all over the place recently. With life in general getting in the way remembering to do my routine as soon as I get it went out the window. It’s more like bed time around 11pm, I need to go wash my face! So when I got these samples 1-2 months ago I decided that maybe a serum could help perk my skin up & make me want to try harder. Both were free samples which helped because these are on the expensive side of skincare.

Clinique Black Honey Brush On Cream Liner

Read More

When I bought this I was on a bit of a “must own all the Clinique Black Honey” make-up products moment. I had just picked up the Christmas Set which I posted on & it was my birthday, this was the final piece I could get hold of. I love the Quickliner for Eyes Intense & thought this would be a good replacement as the quickliner seems limited to the sets. It looks so cute in its packaging although I did expect it to be in a glass pot because it wasn’t a drugstore brand. That being said in hindsight it’s safer for traveling with & much lighter. This cream liner even comes with a little brush which is nice in theory but I found it pretty useless. The handle alone beings so dinky made it impossible to work with any degree of accuracy.

Three Cleansers In Use – A Balm, A Milk & A Mousse

Read More

I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have chosen a more random selection of cleansers to use. I’m fickle when it comes to cleansers, I think most will do a good job & you don’t have to spend the earth to get a good one. The person that cleanses day & night with a budget brand it still doing better than the one who does it every now & again with an expensive one when they can be bothered. Not that all cheap or expensive ones are created equally both can have good & bad effects. I think however what type you use is personal preference more than anything.

Get It Quick While You Can Clinique Magazine Freebie

Read More

Could the above photo be the most random collection of items possible bought by a beauty blogger & photographed together? Well I’m under the weather with Tonsilitis & these are the things I bought to make me happier. My fella fetched me Rock N Roll Bride Magazine which if you want an amazing alternative style wedding this is the magazine for you! The Matchmakers are his as I can’t eat chocolate anymore but the pesto was my idea cause I love me some spicy comfort food, possibly into a lasagna which he might blog about soon over on Pies,Pizza & Pasta. Peanut Butter Ben & Jerry’s is purely medicinal to sooth my throat not because Peanut Butter anything is my addiction or anything… back to why your here this Clinique Freebie.

Dramatic Pinks – Fotd

Read More

I feel like this could be the most non-spring look possible. I feel like I get away with it because it’s very pink! Not your every day pastels or sheer lip colours but something in your face & unapologetic. I guess most would wear this as a night time look but I did this in the day time & loved it. Strong eyes & strong lips complemented each other because my pale skin looked a little stark with just the eye make-up on. Either way let’s get down to how I put this one together, the base isn’t included as I did a very recent post on My Spring & Summer Foundation Routine.
